Don’t call it LARPing! These SCA fighters are historically reenacting the medieval ages! They craft their own knightly armor, weave their own clothes, and string their own bows. Tournaments are decided by strength and the weight of one’s honor rather than the roll of a die. WFSU's Robbie Gaffney journeys to the Lion’s Tournament hosted by Tallahassee’s local SCA group to find out more.
Robbie Gaffney is a recent graduate from Florida State University with degrees in Digital Media Production and Creative Writing. Before working at WFSU, they recorded FSU’s basketball and baseball games for Seminole Productions as well as interned for the PBS Station in Largo, Florida.
Robbie loves playing video games such as Shadow of the Colossus, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. Their other hobbies include sleeping and watching anime.
